Savannah Music Festival LIVE 813 – St. Saëns & Bruch
Though they only met on one occasion, French composer Camille Saint-Saëns and German composer Max Bruch were born two years apart in the 1830s and died only one year apart in the early 1920s. Each man had a prominent musical career and composed prolifically in a wide range of instrumental and vocal genres, including some wonderful chamber music works. In this episode, we listen to Saint-Saëns’ Piano Quartet No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 41 and Bruch’s Octet in B-Flat Major, both performed during the Daniel Hope & Friends chamber music series at the 2015 Savannah Music Festival.
